Hotel Jan Brito

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is literally 200-300m from all the action, yet down a quiet street so you're not bothered by loud revellers. It has a cosy charm to it with a few gardens and old-style furnishings setting it apart from many of the modern hotels littering almost any touristy town you go to. The included breakfast was decent without being special. We noted that they are pet friendly too.

After 2 stays at the Hotel Jan Brito, it is a firm favourite. Location-wise, it is ideally situated a 5 minute walk from the centre of Bruges, just far enough to make it quiet at nights. The staff are very welcoming and happy to help with advice about things to do, places to go, and other tourist information. The building is old, and the rooms could be deemed a little on the small side, comparedto more modern places. However, they are well equipped and comfortable. Breakfast is fairly standard. They serve until 10.30am, which is handy if you are feeling a little worse for wear after visiting thr Beer Museum the previous day! Quality is good and there is a decent selection of both hot and cold food and drink. Overall the Hotel Jan Brito provides an excellent stay in Bruges.

We stayed here for a long weekend in one of the less expensive rooms. The room was 'bijou' but comfortable and well-equipped. "Multi-lingual" to describe the incredibly capable and helpful staff is a bit of an understatement, and I'm surprised they're not working at the UN or EU headquarters. The building itself is beautiful and as authentic as they could keep it while considering the requirements for modern safety and amenities.

Very old fashionned hotel that we did not really liked. Nothing to complain really except that the very large room would badly need some renovation. history is there... but this is not sufficient to spend a good night in a good bed.

I had a single room, #37, on the second floor (3rd floor for US). There was an elevator. The room was a little narrow with a single bed. The bed was too soft for me, but I like a very hard bed for my back. The bathroom was a nice size, with the normal huge bathtub. The shower had good water pressure. The towels are not plush, but do the job. The front desk staff was very helpful with maps and directions. The hotel is within easy walking distance to Bruges Square and Market Square. I did a walking tour from Market Square that helped me.

Stayed just the one night but will definitely go back. Lovely historic building. I particularly loved the stone window seat in my room looking out over the courtyard. Best feature of this hotel has to be the friendly, helpful and happy girls on reception. They were so welcoming and gave lots of good tips of what to do.

Lovely hotel full of European charm. Room was spacious and overlooked the courtyard. Well appointed. Breakfast included with full selection of items. There is a small bar area & sitting area with local information. Staff was friendly & helped with suggestions for restaurants. Convenient location & within easy walking distance to sites

We visited hotel Jan Brito last month for my girlfriends 21st. We had such an amazing time which was helped by the hotel. I asked for balloons and banners to be put up for our arrival which the set up the room was lovely with a welcome package of champagne, flowers and chocolates. Would recommend this place for anyone going for a city break as it is so close to everything didn't have to walk far to get to the main square. (5 minute walk) Great place and great staff.

A very well located hotel nice rooms a little to pricey but overall ok. Minuses are coming from the quality of the breakfast which was very low in diversity and in quantity in one day the butter was finished one type of cheese was also finished. Also they have bicycles but with a price not included in the price of the room, not to nice. For that reasons I did not see any guest to ride the bikes. They were siting unused in the yard. Very nice personnel, nice yard very good TV cable.

Highly recommend this very conveniently located hotel. Aurelie, the receptionist who greeted us, was most welcoming and helpful, and spoke perfect English. The room (no 8) we had (deluxe double) was on the first floor with a double windowed view of the rear garden and fountain. It was a good size with a bath/shower en suite which had a good range of toiletries, replenished daily. The breakfast was plentiful, the usual cereals, juices, fresh fruit, yogurts, cold meats and cheeses and pastries. We also made use of the pleasant bar for an evening drink/coffee, Aurelie doing double duty as a bar-tender as well as evening receptionist, very efficiently. The hotel is only a short walk away from the main Bruges attractions, canals, bars and restaurants and I would not hesitate to return to the Jan Brito to visit this beautiful city again.
